Jaren Jackson Jr. 2018-2019 Season Outlook

Recommended Posts

All jokes aside though - I am expecting wild inconsistency from him, really good games and then duds. Im gonna be holding no matter what because I think he is going to be a monster in the 2nd half of the year, especially if Gasol gets traded.

This kid is gonna be an absolute terror after the all-star break. He's already halfway there. Reminds me of a baby Kevin garnett

I wonder how good this guy will be in a few years.

He has the potential to be a Kevin Garnett-level player. Whether he will is another question because KG is an all-time great, but his game and his build/style is very similar. What really set KG apart as a PF was his playmaking ability. JJJ is already very good on defense and a capable scorer - those skills will improve with time, as will his ability to grab boards. If he can start setting up plays for his teammates though, that'll push him up to a new level.

 

FWIW I think he has the highest ceiling in this year's rookie class. In 2-3 years, I can see him putting up 19/10 with 2 blocks and close to 2 steals. Right now, he's averaging 11.5/5/1.4 with 1.0 stls and 1.8 blks on 45%/76% shooting. I expect these numbers to improve after the ASB.

JJJ TAKE US HOME!!! BRING US THE FANTASY CHAMPIONSHIP!!!  But man, if he can give us close to 4 stocks a game consistently, that is lovely.

just traded Kanter to get on JJJ's train.

Saw that Green is returning in 2 weeks, what will happen, will JJJ keep his starting role?

He plays better than Green. But it does not hurt if he's benched. He'll still get the minutes.

Green is mediocre. JJJ is already better than him on defense and most likely on offense. No reason why Green would go back to starting. Memphis looks to be all in on the kid.
